Turn on thread-notification for another user
« on: June 23, 2017, 10:44:29 AM »
Is there a way to do the above?

Example:
In our development-area on our forum I create a new thread about a new module to be included in the code
and want to have all other programmers automatically notified about this new thread. Therefore I would need to tell SMF: Hey, let that user be notified about this thread and new posts there.

If there already is such a function or if there is a mod providing this function
then please point me to how to use it.

I would be glad to read more.

There isn't such a function currently, as SMF takes the view that people should opt into notifications.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

^ I'm with superman there.

That said, I adjusted the birthday post mod to automatically subscribe the birthday boy to his personalised testimonial topic.

Wouldn't do it in any other circumstance, though.

Only for boys? Where is the feminism-front crying wolf for "girls-power"  ::)

Is that the mod by Suki?

If not, which mod were you talking about?
If so, what did you change in detail?

^ Yep that is the mod.

What I changed was in ScheduledTasks.php and was as follows:

Code: (Find) [Select]
// Make the darn post already!
createPost ($msgOptions, $topicOptions, $posterOptions);


Code: (Add After) [Select]
// Shambles edit #S024: auto-notify the named member
$smcFunc['db_insert']('ignore',
'{db_prefix}log_notify',
array ('id_member' => 'int', 'id_topic' => 'int'),
array ($birthday['id'], $topicOptions['id']),
array ('id_member', 'id_topic')
);
// End Shambles edit #S024
